When i realized it i searched the recycle bin to get my folder containing photos and could not find it. can i get those pictures back i need them. those were my girl friends photos. Please help.

    you have two options.

    One, is to go to a data recovery place.

    The other is t get somethiong like GetDataBack, and see if it can recover your files.
    THat way, you don't pay unless you can see you can recover the files you want. GDB would probably cost less than data recovery.

    It all depends on how much your data is worth.

      You say that the data on the external drive is your backup, so I'd also suggest looking at where the "original" files should be to see if they're still there, or if they have also been lost.

        Hi, ive been using RESTORATION software to recover my deleted files which can no longer found in the recycle bin. Though, there is no assurance all deleted files can be recovered but there's a great chance to look for it using the software.

        You may visit by wordpress blog--"juntariman" (please search my blog since i can't put a url here) and download the software "PC Repair System" found in the BOX of the sidebar of my blog.

          For background info, the recycle bin only covers files deleted off local drives using explorer, no cmd line deletes, deletes off mapped drives etc.

          As mentioned, there is a lot of 3rd party software which may help -- the key thing is not to let anything modify the drive in the meantime, so don't plug it in to any PC until you are ready to recover.
